We Are Missing A Plane

I talked some about the missing and presumed crashed Malaysia Airlines flight 370. There's been lots of speculation by the 24 hour news people. The fact is we don't know what happened on the plane, so we need to wait until the wreckage is found.
Some "theories" include the plane was shot down by a missile, abducted by aliens, fell victim to the Bermuda Triangle, and maybe it was sucked into a black hole. More realistic ideas include equipment failure, pilot error, pilot freak out, or terrorists. One thing I am fairly certain about is the wreckage (including the black box) will need to be recovered for a more definitive answer to be found. But, whatever the answer, conspiracy theorists will not accept it if it dispels their theory of events.

I mentioned that we should have an answer soon, because 70s spoon-bending sensation Uri Geller is on the job. He took to his Twitter account to announce that he had been "asked" to lend his powers of remote viewing to help in the search. Yeah, that'll work. Seems like more of a "don't forget about me" move on Uri's part.

Also, our friends over at Snopes.com have been working hard to counter all the nonsense stories making the internet rounds. Good on them.
Speaking Of Conspiracy Theorists...

Former Z Talker, Kale Kelly has issued me a challenge. He has proposed I watch Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theory on 9/11. Kale cautions me to watch "with an open mind." Sigh. I'll try. To watch it, I mean. I always have an open mind, but Jesse's track record as a conspiracy theorist is well known and I don't have high hopes that his show will get the science right. I guess I'll have to watch to be sure.

Kale actually stopped by the chat room while my show was on and we had a chance to chat. We are planning on getting Kale back on the show. Oh, brother, didn't I learn anything from the other time he was on the show?

What A Dick
The good news is that con artist Kevin Trudeau has been sentenced to ten years in federal prison for fraud. His series of books and infomercials on cures and weight loss secrets "they" don't want you to know about are loads of crap designed to make Kevin rich. He did get rich, but the law has caught up with his con and he's going to prison.

The bad news is his followers are unphased by his guilt. They believe his crap, even though in his statement to the court Kevin promised that should he ever write another book or produce another infomercial there will be "no embellishment, no puffery, and absolutely no lies." I think he just admitted he had been doing just that, don't you? And, yet, his followers will be there with their pockets ripe for picking when he gets out.

Twitter Can Be Awesome

Medical expert by way of her "mommy instinct," anti-vaxxer and one of the most deadly people in the world, Jenny McCarthy recently asked her million plus Twitter followers what was the most important personality trait they look for in a mate. Well, folks who don't accept Jenny's scare-mongering of vaccines told her that basically they look for the trait that isn't anti-vaccine.

My favorite answer: "
My ideal mate likes the idea of kids not getting polio." Excellent! Now if I could figure out why those people were following Jenny in the first place. Might be her boobies.

What Another Dick

One dick was not enough for this show. In fact, if we include Uri and Jenny (and why wouldn't we?) this guy will make it four dicks on this one show.
So, apparently, Colorado resident Roy Ortiz isn't as happy with his rescuers as he was the day they rescued from his overturned car, which had been washed of the road by flood waters. At first, Mr. Ortiz was very grateful for his rescuers from the North Metro Fire Rescue and he credited his ability to remain calm to God. However, time and a lawyer has made Mr. Ortiz give the situation a bit of a rethink.

Now this dick is preparing to sue his rescuers for not saving him quickly enough and that it was the grace of God that saved him. Hmm, who does he think was responsible the flood waters?

Movie Recommendation: Billy Jack (1971)
Yeah, it's filled with hippies. And, yes, it trades in the myth of the noble savage. And, sure, it's supposed message of peaceful coexistence is mixed with loads of violence. And it's naive and a bit silly. But Billy Jack kicks ass!
Fred Phelps

The man who gave the world the immortal phrase "God hates fags" has died.
